Mayor's Office, } 
September 24th, 1899. \ 

To the Honorable^ the City Council: 

Gentlemen— Before the summer vacatian 
I instructed tne Street Department to prepare 
a tabulated statement of public property in 
the down town district now in use for private 
purposes. 

For years your honorable body has been in 



September 25,J

the habit of granting to individuals the use 
of street space as well as space under and 
over streets and alleys for private purposes, 
such as bay windows, tunnels, bridges, etc. 
Until 1897 there was but one case where any 
revenue was demanded for the city in return 
for the privilege granted. I have always 
held that no matter how trivial might be the 
private use of public property, proper com- 
pensation should be required, and since 1897 
the various privileges of this character have 
borne such compensation. 

It was for the purpose of calling your hon- 
orable body's attention to privileges which 
return to the public no compensation of any 
character or description that the attached 
statement was prepared. I would respect- 
fully advise the publication of the list and 
the reference of the entire subject matter to 
the Finance Committee for early and proper 
adjustment. 

Since ordering the preparation of the 
statement, a new phase of the question has 
developed. Some years ago, June 5, 1892, 
the City Council granted permission to one 
John M. Pashley to construct a passageway 
across the alley between Lots 9, 10. 11 on one 
side and Lot 6 in Assessor's subdivision of 
Lots 6, 7, 8 on the other, all in Block 13, Fort 
Dearborn Addition to Chicago. This alley 
runs north and south in the block bounded 
by State street, Washington street, Randolph 
street and Wabash avenue. The privilege 
obtained by John M. Pashley was assigned 
to Marshall Field & Co., and the passage- 
way partially constructed when court proceed- 
ings on behalf of an adjoining property owner 
were instituted for the purpose of having the 
grant declared illegal. On the final hearing, 
the Supreme Court rendered a aecision prac- 
tically annulling the grant, it being held that 
the public highways belong to the people and 
are held by the municipality in trust for the 
people, and that the municipality may not 
permit the exclusive use by an individual of 
any part of thenl either on the ground, under 
the ground or above it. 

In view of this decision, 1 have insisted all 
orders of this character granted by your hon- 
orable body should be upon the express con- 
dition that the Mayor and Commissioner of 
Public Works may order the removal of the 
obstruction in their discretion. In this way 
the public's interests remain unjeoparded 
and property ®wners are placed upon an 
equal footing. I have held it unjust and 



unfair to refuse a privilege to one property 
owner when the same privilege in years past 
has been granted to and is now enjoyed by 
his neighbors. 

For some months past a newspaper of this 
city has demanded the removal of the passage- 
way erected by Marshall Field & Co. under 
the Council order of June Oth, 1897, basing 
its demand upon the above mentioned Su- 
prenie Court decision. The same newspaper 
has failed to demand, to cite a few of many 
cases, the removal of Schlesinger & Mayer's 
bridge, of the Auditorium passageway under 
Congress street, of Mandel Bros.' excavation 
under the alley In the rear of their buildingi 
of the Boston store's connecting structure 
between Its Madison street and State street 
stores, of Siegel, Cooper & Co.'s so-called 
storm door at State and Van Buren streets: 
nor has the newspaper offered to make resti- 
tution to the public of the alley space it uses 
without compensation in connection with its 
own private business. Within sixty days 
Marshall Field & Co. have entered into an 
agreement to pay the city f*5,000 per annum 
for the privilege of maintaining the passage- 
way in question. 

I have not felt at liberty as a public oflScial 
to demand of Marshall Field & Co. the re- 
moval of an obstruction, and at the same 
time shut my eyes to the existence of a like 
obstruction in connection with the business 
of one of their neighbors. It seems to m.e 
that, as these permits have been granted by 
your Honorable Body, It remains with you to 
say whether future petitioners shall be treated 
with the same consideration as petitioners of 
the past and compensation be exacted from 
enjoyers of privileges granted in previous 
years, or whether the city shall take possession 
of its streets and alleys and compel the re- 
moval of each and every private encroachment 
upon the public use of the same. Personally, 
I am utterly unwilling to lend myself or my 
official position to any action which shall 
contemplate the refusal of a permit to one 
citizen when like permits are granted to and 
enjoyed by other citizens. 

I am advised the cities of New York and 
Philadelphia are in receipt of revenue from 
just such sources as those enumerated above. 
Under this administration compensation has 
been exacted at rates running from $1.00 per 
square foot per annum down, the amount 
being based upon the estimated value of the 
grant. The attached report of the Street 



September 25,J

[1899 



Department estimates the use under such 
grants, and in the down town district, at 
1,417,8463^ square feet. The value of the 
space varies, of course, according to location 
and use. It is not an extravagant estimate, 
however, to place an average value of 33X 
cents per square foofe per annum upon the 
occupied space; this would yield a revenue 
to the city of S473,615.33. In the present 
condition of municipal finances such a rev- 
enue is not lightly to be considered. 

I would ask that this communication as 
well as accompanying papers be referred to 
the Finance Committee for its early consid- 
eration. 

Respectfully, 

Carter H. Harrisox, 

3fayor. 



Chicago, September 15, 1899. 

M. J. Doherty^ Usq., SupH. of Streets: 

Dear Sir — In accordance with the request 
of Commissioner McGann, addressed to you 
under date of May 39th, 1899, asking for a 
report of persons occuping space under side- 
walks, streets and alleys in the down town 
district, viz: Van Buren street north to 
river, and also with such information in con- 
nection with the report as will enable His 
Honor, the Mayor, to determine what is 
reasonable compensation for the same, I beg 
to submit the following report: The total 
amount of space used is 1,389,717)^ square 
feet, as follows : 

Under sidewalks 1,289,584 

Under streets 42,959 

Under alleys 73,657 

Over alleys and streets (bridges) . . 5,747 
In tunnels 5,4993^ 

You will find attached a complete list of 
property, giving location and amount of 
space, what the space is used for and the 
name of the agent or owner of same ; also list 
of l)ay windows on sidewalks, light shafts 
and entrances projecting on sidewalks; steam 
pipes and private wires across streets and 
alleys. 

In our investigation we were obliged to 
come in contact with the business men of the 
down town district. We explained our mis- 
sion and in our interview with them the 
opinion of charging compensation for the use 
of the space outside of the building line 



varied. Some considered it a wise move and 
approved of it; others seriously objected to 
the scheme, claiming the space was rented to 
them as part of the building. 

Some suggested that the space be used by 
the city for a subway : also for water mains, 
electric wires and other municipal privileges, 
while others claimed the city had no authority 
to charge. 

WHAT THE SPACE IS USED FOR. 

The space is used for engine rooms, boiler 
rooms, warehouse purposes, storage, saloons, 
restaurants, workshops, barber shops, bath 
rooms, safety deposit vaults, oflSces, stock 
rooms, sales rooms, wash rooms, coal, etc. 

One ot the finest power plants in the city is 
entirely under the street, viz., the Masonic 
Temple. It occupies the entire width of 
Burton court for a distance of 159 feet. 

The Great Northern, Rookery, and Mar- 
shall Field have great power plants under 
Quincy street. 

BARBER SHOPS UNDER SIDEWALKS. 

At the northwest corner of La Salle and 
Washington streets, the space is rented as 
barber shop and bathroom for a rental of 
$1,000 per year; not oue ffeot of space is on 
private property, all being under the side- 
walk ; a stairway is cut in the sidewalk to 
allow entrance; there are several other sim- 
ilar instances in the district. 

GOOD SIDEWALKS. 

Where the owner of a piece of property has 
invested a considerable amount of money in 
preparing the space for rental, or where the 
space is used to good advantage, as is the 
general rule, the sidewalks are of the highest 
grade, and are continually kept in good re- 
pair, while other spaces that are of little or 
no use hare sidewalks neglected and made to 
last as long as possible. 

NEW BUILDINGS. 

There are several new buildings in course 
of construction, and preparations are now 
being made to use sidewalk space. 

CITY CODB ON THIS QUESTION. 

Section 1826, Code of 1897: "No person 
shall be allowed to occupy or use for vaults, 
area or other purposes the space beneath the 
sidewalks, included within the sidewalk line, 
unless a permit therefor shall first be ob- 



September 25, J 



1184 



[1899 



tained from the Commissioner of Public 
Works, the fee for which shall be 15.00." 

Section 1827: ''Such permits shall specify 
in general terms the purposes for which the 
spaces under the sidewalks shall be used." 

Section 1829: "Any owner, builder or other 
person who shall occupy or use the space 
without a permit shall be liable to a fine of 
not less than $25.00 for first offense, and a 
further penalty of $10.00 for every twenty- 
four hours such occupation used without 
such permit shall continue." 

Marshall Field can be quoted as the one 
using- the greatest amount of space; in ten 
pieces of property the amount of space used 
is 76,3643^ square feet. 

The smallest space used is located at No. 
55 La Salle street, having 140 square feet. 

Approximately 65 per cent of the property 
in the down town district is owned by non- 
residents. Three of the largest property 
owners are Marshall Field, L. Z. Leiter and 
L. J. McCormick. 

The sidewalk space around the following 
buildings is. not used: 

First National Bank, Chicago National 
Bank, Adams Express Building, The How- 
land Block, Chicago, Burlington and Quincy 
Railway building; these spaces are of no 
value. 

At least 100 boilers are under the side- 
walks in the down district, in violation of 
Section 1634, Code of 1897, which reads as 
follows: "No boiler, steam shaft, furnace 
or steam pipe, or cess pool shall be placed 
under any sidewalk." 

State street has 120,828 square feet of side- 
walk space and is undermined from the 
river to Van Buren street; beside the several 
large office buildings, the larger business 
firms use every inch of available space, while 
a great many of the smaller firms use the 
space for coal and storage of empty boxes. 

Wabash avenue has 146,514 square feet and 
Michigan avenue has 40,444)^ square feet. 
A large portion of the space on these two 
avenues is used for storage purposes, espe- 
cially among the wholesale houses, while a 
few placas are not undermined. 

Dearborn street has 74,896)^ square feet; 
while this is one of the important streets of the 
district, over one-half of the space indicated 



is of no value to the present tenants, as it is 
principally used for old storage. Many of 
the larger buildings use the space and in some 
instances it would cause much inconvenience 
if the city took possession of the space. 

Clark street has 65,522 square feet; the 
Ashland Block, Sherman House, Chicago 
Opera House, Foit Dearborn and Western 
Union Buildings, use their available space, 
while f-everal small buildings use the space 
for saloon and restaurant purposes, engine 
rooms and coal. 

La Salle street has 57,482)^ square feet. A 
great many of the buildings front of this 
street were built shortly after the great fire, 
and the architects were evidently not aware 
of the value of sidewalk space, for the en- 
trances to the ground floor in many cases are 
four and five feet down, making the space 
beneath the sidewalk useless ; what they fail 
in the use of sidewalk space they make up 
in the use of bay windows. The more re- 
cently constructed buildings, such as the 
Stock Exchange, Chamber of Commerce, 
New York Life, Home Insurance, and the 
Rookery Building consider the space valu- 
able, for they contain safety deposit vaults, 
offices, restaurants and excellent power 
plants. 

Fifth avenue has 73,791)^ square feet, the 
greater part of which is of small value, prin- 
cipally used for coal storage; the Enterprise, 
Daily News ana Security Buildings use the 
space for printing and restaurant purposes. 

Franklin street has 72,6713^ square feet. A 
large number of wholesale houses are located 
on this street, and a greater portion of the 
space is used to good advantage, mostly for 
storage and warehouse purposes. There is 
very little unused space on this street. 

Market street has 77,289)^ square feet, 
which is almost entirely used by wholesale 
houses for storage purposes. 

South Water street has 66,344 square feet, 
most of which is used for banana rooms and 
storage purposes; on the north side of the 
street, next to the river, the basement and 
sidewalk space is of little value to the 
tenants. 

River street has 12,924 square feet, used 
mostly for storage purposes and coal. 

Lake street has 68,077^ square feet, used 
principally by wholesale houses for storage 



September 25, J

[1899 



purposes; there are a few instances where 
the space is used for c®al onl3^ 

Randolph street has 59,2S2X square feet ; 
most of the space on this street is little used, 
few who use for storage and saloon purposes: 
Sprague, Warner Company, The Schiller, 
Sherinan House are users to good advantage. 

Washington street has 51,777 square feet; 
the Trude building, Marshall Field, Title 
and Trust, Chicago Opera House, Stock Ex- 
change and Chicago Telephone building all 
use the space ; others use for coal, engine 
purposes and old storage. 

Madison street has 6S,511 square feet; 
Monroe street 54,974 and Adams street 56,090 
square feet; on the above mentioned streets 
the spaces where buildings have been con- 
structed during the past two years are used 
to good advantage. In the older buildings 
the space is of small value. 

Quincy street has 46,663 square feet; all 
the space on this street is used; in four 
places the space extends to the center of the 
street, and in two places across the entire 
width. 

Van Buren street has 25,877)^ square feet; 
the Fischer building, Roschchild, Monad- 
nock and the Rialto buildings are about the 



only used ; the rest of the space is of small 
value. 

Sherman street has 8,617X square feet; 
Pacific avenue 10,153; Plymouth place 6,3693^ 
square feet; Custom House place 2,497,^ 
square feet. 

The above mentioned streets are but one 
block in length and but little used, a few 
places only being used for coal. 

Extract from New York City report, 1896 : 

"For many years the charge for occupying 
the space under the sidewalk, and in many 
cases beyond the curb line, for vaults in front 
of buildings, remained fixed at 75 cents per 
superficial square foot; ©n August 4, 1896, 
the price was increased to 12.00 per square 
foot. 

"The object of this was not only to make the 
compensation to the city commensurate with 
the value of the privilege, but to discourage 
the encroachment into and under the public 
walks and street by a vault construction." 

Philadelphia charges according to the 
amount of value invested in preparing the 
space for use. 

Respectfully submitted,

preserving the company's right and authority 
to restore said tracks whenever desirable. I 
assume said permission should come from the 
City Council. 

Please advise me if there is any objection to

We would like to have permission to re- 
move the tracks temporarily, and have the 
consent and authority given, wiih the right 
to restore the same whenever it should be 
deemed desirable so to do upon terms and 
conditions, etc., etc., as heretofore granted 
under existing ordinances and contracts re- 
lating to the use of that portion of the street 
for railway purposes, the same as was 
granted for 18th street tracks, 

I am at present discussing the same with 
the representative of the property holders,

Very truly yours.

To the Honorable, the City Council : 

Gentlemen — I submit herewith for your 
consideration a list of gas lamps maintained 
by the city in front of churches and other 
public institutioas. For some vears it has 
been the fashion in the Council to order the 
erection of two boulevard lamps practically 
in front of all the churches in the city. These 
lamps are being maintained today merely as 
a luxury when the financial condition of the 
city makes it necessary to shut off large num- 
bers of lamps which are a positive necessity. 
I would advise the reference of this list to 
the Committee on Oil, Gas and Electric 
Light for its early attention. 
Respectfully. 

Carter H. Harrison, 
Mayor.

my approval, an order passed by your Honor- 
able Body at its last meeting providing for 
the making of a contract for the construction 
©f a bridge across the Calumet River at 95th 
street, for the reason that if this is based on 
the fact of the former bridge having been 
broken by casualty the order should be passed 
by a two-thirds' vote. There is also the ad- 
ditional point that this order is a proposition 
to create a liability against the city, and. 
should, under Cities and Villages Act, Article 
3, Section 13, be passed by a nay and yea 
vote. 

Respectfully, 

Carter H. Harrison, 

Jlayor. 

Aid. Watkins moved to reconsider the vote 
by which the order referred to in the veto 
message of His Honor the Mayor, was passed. 

The motion ])revailed. 

Aid. Watkins moved that the order be 
passed, the veto of His Honor the Mayor to 
the contrary notwithstanding. 

The motion was lost.

Whereas, A large number of the streets

paving, but objection is raised to such im- 
provement by the property owners on acconnt 
of the great cost; and 

Whereas, The excessive cost to the prop- 
erty owner is occasioned mainly by the in- 
crease levied in order to warrant the terms of 
the specifications, whereby the pavement is 
guaranteed for ten years after the street is 
improved, as well as by the additional cost 
imposed on material for promoting purposes: 
therefore, fee it 

Resolved, "Yhdii the Local Board of Improve- 
ments be and is hereby instructed to so word 
all specifications, ordinances and contracts as 
to exclude the ten year guarantee clause and 
include such a clause as will provide for and 
insure open competition for all material used

fcsepteinber 25, 



1256 



[1899 



$78,510,576.00; and the North Town assess- 
nneut for 1898 was $16,437,730.00, and for 
' 1899, 130,637,407.00; and the South Town 
assessment for 189S was $70'69:),934.00, and 
for 1899, $132,809,137.00; and, 

WuEREAs, The Board of Review, claiming 
to be clothed with power to equalize valua- 
tions, even as to individuals, \viJl scarcely 
venture to allow or present such g-laring in- 
equality of valuations, to stand as repre- 
senting justice between the three important 
towns, when their especial attention is di. 
rected to this ii atter, but will undoubtedly 
reduce the assessed valuation made in the 
West Town to coincide with the pro rata of 
increase made in the South and North 
Towns; and, 

Whereas, Any increase made by the State 
Board of Equalization must be by counties 
and not by towns, it will readily be seen that 
a, great injustice will be done the taxpayers 
of the West Town of Chicago if the above 
unequaled pro-rata of valuations is to stand, 
therefore be it 

Reaolved, That the Board of Review be and 
it is hereby requested to so equalize the valu- 
ations in the North, South and West Towns

and ordinance directing the City Comptroller 
to transfer the sum of $26,500 from street 
lamp fund to the fund for extension of fire 
alarm telegraph and police telephone systems,

William Schlake, 

Chairman. 

WhEKEAs, Orders have been issued from 
time to time by this body looking toward the 
removal of poles and overhead wires from the 



underground wherever and whenever prac- 
tical so to do; and, 

Whereas, It is necessary that on all streets 
about to be improved with pavement of a 
lasting material, such as asphalt, brick, etc., 
all electric light, telegraph, telephone and 
other wires now strung overhead on poles 
along such streets be renioved and placed in 
underground conduits and the poles removed, 
so that such newly paved streets be not dis- 
turbed hereafter for the purpose of placing 
such wires underground; and. 

Whereas, The various persons and cor- 
porations owning or controlling such poles 
and wires along such streets are ready and 
willing to remove same arid use underground 
conduits, for the purpose of stringing their 
wires therein, but are unable so to do in 
many instances for the reason that the city's 
electric light, police, telephone and fire 
alarm wires are strung upon poles owned or 
controlled by such persons or corporations, 
and by reason thereof the work on certain 
streets has been stopped, leaving them in a 
torn up and uncompleted condition; and 

Whereas, By'reason of a lack of money 
in the fund properly chargeable with the ex- 
pense of removing the city's wires and plac- 
ing the same in underground conduits, a 
great and much needed improvement is likely 
to be indefinitely postponed, and it appearing 
that now while the streets are being improved 
is the proper time to place these wires under- 
ground and the time at which such changes 
may be made at the least expense and incon- 
venience to the public; therefore, for the pur- 
pose of furnishing the funds necessary for 
the carrying on promptly of the city's part 
of this work. 

Be it ordai?ied by the City Cotmcil of the City 
of Chicago. 

Section 1. That the City Comptroller be 
and he is hereby authorized and directed to 
transfer the sum of twenty-six thousand five 
hundred ($26,500.00) dollars from the "Street 
streets of this city and placing the wires | Lamp Lighting Fund" to the "Fund for Ex-

was 

Placed on file. 

By consent Aid. Powers moved to recon- 
sider the vote by which an ordinance for curb-

page 1243. 

The motion prevailed. 

Aid. Powers moved that the ordinance be 
referred back to the Board of Local Improve- 
ments. 

The motion prevailed. 

His Honor, the Mayor, submitted the fol- 
lowing veto message : 

Mayor's Office, ) 
October 5th, 1899. \ 

To the Honorable, the City Council: 

Gentlemen — I herewith return, without 
my approval, an ordinance passed by y®ur 
Honorable Body at its last meeting changing 
the name of North 70th avenue to Sayre ave- 
nue, for the reason that on January 14, 1895, 
all the north and south streets lying west of 
40th avenue were changed to numbered 
streets, beginning at 40th. avenue, and num- 
bering up, 40th avenue, 41st avenue, 42d ave- 
nue, etc. In this ordinance Sayre avenue 
was changed to North 70th avenue. The 
passage of this ordinance would result in 
nullifying the system ci'eated by the ordi- 
nance of January 14th, 1895, and ultimately 
put the city to great extra expense, for, if the 
name of one street is changed, other changes 
will quickly follow. 

Respectfully, 

Carter H. Harrison, 

JTayor. 

Aid. Jackson moved to reconsider the vote 
by which the ordinance referred to in the 
veto message ©f His Honor, the Mayor, was 
passed. 

The motion prevailed. 

Aid. Powers moved that the ordinance be 
passed, the veto of His Honor, the Mayor, to 
the contrary notwithstanding. 

The motion was lost. 



The following veto message: 

Mayor's Office, / 
October 5th, 1899. j" 

To the Honorable, the City Council: 

Gentlemen— I herewith return, without 
my approval, an order passed by your Honor- 
able Body at its last meeting, awarding the 
contract for city printing to the Chicago 
Daily Labor World, for the following reasons : 
I do not believe the circulation of the Dailj'' 
Labor World is sufficient to warrant the ex- 
penditure of public money for the publica- 
tion of city business in its columns. The 
Daily Labor World has no general circula- 
tion ; that is, it is neither offered for sale by 
newsboys or news stands, nor is it delivered 
from house to house by newspaper carriers. 
The object of publication is to bring public 
business to the attention of the general news- 
paper reading public. The ordinance author- 
izing an official newspaper particularly calls 
attention to the necessity of a general 
circulation of the official newspaper when it 
empowers the board of award to consider the 
circulation of all papers that submit bids. It 
seems a pure waste of public funds to adv^'- 
tise the necessities of the city .government in 
a newspaper without readers. The only copies 
of the Daily Labor World that I have seen 
are those which have been left in my office 
since that paper first became a bidder for 
city printing. While the paper may be a 
union paper in everj' branch, and as such en- 
titled to consideration at the hands of all 
friends of union organization, those same 
friends of union labor should first establish 
the Daily Labor World with a general news- 
paper circulation before claiming it entitled 
to consideration as a newspaper within the 
purview of the city ordinances. 

Moreover the order in Question is clearly 
illegal. The city ordinance authorizing an 
official newspaper reads in part as follows: 

1343. Award of Contract.]— Said bids 
shall be opened at the hour and place men- 
tioned in said advertisement, by the Comp- 
troller, in the presence ©f the Mayor and the 
Chairman of the Committee on Finance, 
who shall constitute a board for such pur- 
pose, and it shall then and there be ascer- 
tained and determined by the majority of 
said Board who is, if any one, the lowest re- 
liable and responsible bidder for each of said 
contracts. 



October 5, 



1273 



[1899 



1345. Approval of Bids — Letting 
Contract.]— All bids received by the Comp- 
troller, and the action of said Board thereon, 
shall be reported by said Coraptrolleif'to the 
City Council for its approval; and M^hen ap- 
proved by that body, the said several con- 
tracts shall be let by said Comptroller to the 
person or persons to whom they were awarded 
by said Board, for the period of one year and 
no longer." 

This ordinance constitutes a Board of 
Award 'consisting of the Mayor, the Comp- 
troller and the Chairman of the Finance 
Committee who shall receive and open all bids 
and who shall decide which newspaper is the 
lowest reliable and responsible bidder. In 
reaching this decision. Section 1845 of the 
Code authorizes the Board of Award to "take 
into considerati®n the circulation of the bid- 
der's newspaper within the limits of the 
city." When the Board of award has reached 
a decision, then the Comptroller shall report 
its action t© the City Council for its approval^ 
etc. In other Avords, the Mayor, the Comp- 
troller and the Chairman of the Finance 
Committee make the award; the only rights 
of the City Council are to approve or'to dis- 
approve of such award. In the present case, 
the Board has awarded the printing contract 
to the Chicago Democrat. Your Honorable 
Body, in attempting to make the award to 
the Daily Labor World, has eone beyond its 
powers. Under the existing ordinances, the 
most your Honorable Body can do is to refuse 
to approve of the award as made by the 
Board and order a new advertisement by the 
Comptroller. 

I attach opinion of the Corporation Counsel 
in reference to the validity of this order. 
Very respectfully, 

Carter H. Harrison, 
Mayor. 



Office of the ) 

Counsel to the Corporation, y 

October 5, 1899. j 

Son. Carter H. Harrison, Mayor: 

Dear Sir— The Corporation Counsel has 
referred to me the question ®f the validity ©f 
the Counsel order passed September 25, 1899, 
and found in the proceedings of that day, 
page 1267, awarding the city printing for the 
year ending April 1, 1900. 

The mode of letting contracts for the city 



printing is provided for by Sections 1342, 
1343 and 1346, Revised Code 1897. 

Section 1342 provides for the method of 
making the bids. 

Section 1343 provides that the bids shall be 
opened by a board for that purpose, consist- 
ing of the Mayor, the Comptroller and the 
Chairman of the Finance Committee, and 
that the majority of such board shall deter- 
mine who is the lowest reliable and responsi- 
ble bidder. 

Section 1346 provides that "all bids re- 
ceived by the Comptroller, and the action 
of said board thereon, shall be referred by 
said Comptroller to the City Council for its 
approval; and when approved by that board, 
the said several contracts shall be let by said 
Comptroller to the person or persons to 
whom they were awarded by said board for 
the period of one year and no longer." 

Under this ordinance the Council has the 
right to consider the whole action of the 
board and may examine all the bids received, 
and then approve or disapprove the board's 
action. If the action of the board is ap- 
proved the Comptroller lets tthe contract to 
the person to whom it was. awarded by the 
board. No provision is madejfor the conse- 
quences of the Council's disapproval of the 
board's action. It must»be taken, in such a 
case, that the Council's disapproval renders 
of no effect the award made by the board. 
There is not only no provision made for the 
award to be made by the Council, but the 
provisions of the sections quoted which con- 
stitute the board and define its duties and 
the mode by which the contract shall be let 
preclude the idea that the Council intended 
by these ordinances to reserve to itself the 
making of the award if it saw fit. 

The order passed by the Council does not 
operate as a repeal of the sections of the Re- 
vised Code in question. Qln the case of Hib- 
bard vs. City of Chicago, 173 111., 91, it was 
expressly held "that an«ordinance of the city 
can only be repealed or|amended by an ordi- 
nance of the city. A mere resolution or 
order by the City Council, not passed and 
published as an ordinance|of the city, would 
not constitute a repeal of an ordinance duly 



I am, therefore, of opinion that the power 
of the Council, under its own ordinances, is 
limited to an approval or disapproval of the 
award made by the board, and that the Coun- 



Octobei" 5,]

cil has no power itself t© make the award of 
the printing contract. 

Yours respectfully, 
Colin Ftffe, 
Assistant Corporatio7i Counsel.

ceedure of business, and stated that the intro- 
duction of the same would be in order under 
the call of the wards.

ALSO, 

The following veto message: 

Mayor's Office, ) 
October 15tli, 1899. ( 

To the Honorable^ the City Council: 

Gentlemen — I herewith I'eturn, without 
my approval, an ordinance passed by your 
Honorable Body at its last meeting providing 
for "public safety, regulating the business 
of running and operating freight and passen- 
ger elevators in the City of Chicago," for the 
reason that the ordinance appeal's to me to be 
unreasonable in some of its provisions. From 
information brought to me within the last 
few days I learn there are a large number of 
freight elevators in the city used exclusively 
for the purpose of carrying freight, many of 
which are operated from one floor to the 
next. It is claimed many of these elevators 
are used at rare intervals, and that a pro- 
vision requiring the employment of an eleva- 
tor conductor for each would work a great 
hardship to the business interests of Chicago. 
From what I can learn I also believe the asre 
limit of 21 years is unfair. Of the four 
thousand elevator conductors in Chicago cer- 
tainly a large percentage are of an age be- 
tween 18 and 21 years, and many of these 
have mothers and sisters largely dependent 
upon their earnings for their livelihood. It 
would certainly seem unfair and unjust to 
throw this large class of industrious and in- 
telligent young men out of worR on any in- 
elastic rule requiring elevator conductors to 
be of at least 21 years of age. 

Section 4 of this ordinance, providing for 
registered apprentices, the method of their 
employment and the work they can do, seems 
unnecessary when you consider that the sec- 
tion itself prohibits a registered apprentice 
from running an elevator except in the pres- 
ence and under the supervision of a regis- 
tered elevator conductor. This being the 
case, there is absolutely nothing to be gained 
by including this section in the ordinance. 
Nor do I believe the Board as constituted by 
the ordinance is a proper one. The best 
thought of to-day of those making careful 
study of municipal matters is opposed to the 
constitution of large numbers of boards. It 
seems to me, in conclusion, that the examin- 
ation of applicants for licenses as elevator 
conductors and the issuing of the licenses 
could be properly left to employes of the 
Building Department. 
Taken as a whole, with the above objections 



cured, I believe this ordinance a l)eneficial 
one, and that it would have the ettect of re- 
ducing the number of casualties resulting 
from accidents due to the incompetency of 
elevator operators, and for that reason I 
would suggest a reconsideration of the vote 
by which the ordinance was originally passed 
and its passage with the following amend- 
ments: 

Amend Section 1, line 4, by adding after 
the word "freight,'- in the fourth line, the 
following words: "elevator in which passen- 
gers are carried." 

Amend Section 2, line 5, by adding after 
the word "freight," in the tifth line, 
"elevator in which passengers are carried." 

Amend Section 2, line 9, by striking out 
after the word "conductor," the following 
words: "or a registered apprentice acting in 
the presence and under the immediate super- 
vision of a registered elevator conductor." 

Amend Section 3, line 2, by striking out 
the words "twenty-one" and substituting the 
word "eighteen" therefor. 

Atiiend Section 4 by striking out the whole 
of said section with the exception of the last 
clause thereof, and adding in the last line 
of said section the following words: "Or to 
elevators operated between two floors only, or 
to elevators used for hoisting in buildings in 
process of construction," so that said Section 
4 shall read as follows : 

"Nothing in this ordinance contained shall 
be held to apply to elevators operated from 
sidewalks to basements, commonly known as 
sidewalk elevators, or to elevators operated 
in private residences, or to elevators operated 
between two floors only, or to elevators used 
for hoisting in buildings in process of con- 
struction." 

Amend Section 6 by striking out all of said 
section down to the word "shall," in line 7 
and substituting therefor the following 
words: "The Commissioner of Buildings, 
the Deputy Commissioner of Buildings, and 
one city elevator inspector to be selected by 
the Commissioner of Buildings." 

Further amend Section 6 by striking out, 
in lines 9, 10 and 11, the following words: 
"The person so appointed shall hold office 
for two years and until their successors are 
appointed." 

Further amend Section 6 by striking out, 
in lines 42, 43, 44 and 45, the following words 



October 16,J 



1309 



[1899 



"The treasurer of said board shall give a bond 
in the penal sum of |5,000 for the faithful 
performance of his duties as such treasurer 
and." 

Further amend Section 6 hy striking- out, 
in line 49, the words "both of," and also 
striking out the word "bonds" in said line, 
and substituting- the word "bond" therefor. 

Further amend Section 6 by striking; out, 
in lines 54 to 64, the following- words* "And 
the members of the b@ard shall be paid the 
sum of 15 for each day actually engage4 in 
the performance of their duties as herein set 
forth, or such portion of the same as the 
moneys received by the treasurer of said 
board shall permit ; but no part of such sal- 
ary or per diem charges shall be paid out of 
the general funds of the city, but the same 
shall be paid from the registration fees and 
from all moneys collected under the provis- 
ions of this ordinance." 

Further amend Section 6 by striking out, 
in line 68, the word "treasurer," and substi- 
tuting the word "collector" therefor. 

Respectfully, 

Carter H. Harrison, 

Mayor. 

Aid. Jackson moved to reconsider the vote 
by which the ordinance referred to in the 
veto message @f His Honor, the Mayor, was 



The motion prevailed. 

Aid . Jackson moved the reference of the 
ordinance and the veto message to the Com- 
mittee on Judiciary. 

After debate. Aid. Rector moved that the 
ordinance and amendments as submitted by 
His Honor, the Mayor, be deferred and made 
a special order for the next regular meeting 
at 8:30 o'clock P. M. 

POINT OF ORDER. 

Aid. Mavor rose to a point of order, his 
point of order being that the subject matter 
was entirely new matter, and that under the 
rules and Aid. Jackson's motion the same 
must be sent to the Committee on Judiciary 
unless the rules were suspended. 

The Chair ruled the point of order not well 
taken. 

Aid. Brenner moved to amend Aid. Rec- 



tor's motion so as to set the matter down as 
a special order for two weeks from to-night 
at 8:30 o'clock P. M. 

The amendment was adopted.

The following veto message : 

Mayor's Office, ) 
October 16th, 1899. \ 

To the HonoraUe^ the City Council- 

Gentlemen— I herewith return, without

Aid. Sehlake presented the following reso-

Whereas, It is a well-known fact that in 
the growth and development of this city, mu- 
nicipal improvements such as street paving, 
sidewalk construction, bridge construction, 
electric lighting, garbage and sti-eet cleaning 
plants, police stations, fire engine houses, 
etc., etc., have not been provided fast enough 
to keep pace with private enterprises ; and 

Whereas, Many of the improvements pro- 
vided by the city have been of a temporary^ 
character, s®on impaired by use and decay, 
requiring renewals faster than the city's in- 
come would admit of, resulting in increasing 
the cost of maintenance — a polic3' of extrava- 
gance to be avoided, if possible; and 

Whereas, The city, in its extreme financial 
embarrassment, rather than delay certain 
necessary public improvements, has unjustly 
placed against a portion of its citizens — own- 
ers of property abutting on streets being im- 
proved by special assessment — charges that 
should be paid from funds raised by general 
taxation ; and 

Whereas, In such a crisis it is the duty of 
this Council to proclaim to the public its 
inability to provide the necessary ways and 
means to properly construct improvements 
necessary to the growth of the city, and 
maintain and operate the same because of 
statutory provisions, and 

Whereas, This should receive early and 
earnest consideration by the legislature of 
this state ; therefore. 

Resolved, That we, the City Council of the 
City of Chicago, do hereby declare and pro- 
claim that with the means at our command, 
we cannot meet the just expectations of the 
citizens of this city in regard to improve- 
ments that should be made by the munici- 



October 16J 



1327 



pality and which are necessary to the busi- 
ness interests, the pleasure and comfort of 
the citizens of this city; also, 

Resolved, That we, in the name of the peo- 
ple of Chicago, petition the Legislature of 

the State of Illinois to so amend Section 

of the Statutes so as to read: ''5 per cent, 
of assessed valuation" instead of "2>^ per 
cent, of assessed valuation;" also, 

Henolved, That a committee of one hundred 
citizens of Chicago be appointed by the Pres- 
ident of this Council to draft and present an 
address to the Legislature setting forth 
reasons for such amendment. 

Which was ordered made a special order 
for Monday October 30, 1899, at 8:45 o'clock

[1899 



the necessity of these parks and play grounds 
for the use of children in this rapidly grow- 
ing city, and also in view of the fact that real 
estate can be purchased at a lower price now 
than at any time in the near future, and in 
order to provide means to accomplish this de- 
sired object, they would recommend the pur- 
chase for park purposes ©f two pieces or par- 
cels of land of net less than ten acres each in 
the West Division of the city; two pieces or 
parcels of land of not less than ten acres 
each in the South Division of the city; two 
pieces or parcels of land of not less than ten 
acres each in the North Division of the city; 
the same to be used for public parks and play 
grounds, in accordance with the order intro- 
duced by Aid. Griffith, and the resolution 
submitted by Aid. Jackson hereto attached; 
therefore, be it 

Ordered, That the Mayor, Comptroller and 
Corp®ration Counsel be and they are hereby 
authorized and directed to prepare and sub- 
mit to the City Council, for passage, the 
necessary ordinance for the sale of the west 
fifty (50) feet of Lot 7, Blk. 58, and the north 
34 feet of Lots 32 to 35 in Block 65 in the 
Original Town of the City of Chicago; also 
the west twenty-eight (28) feet of Lot 22, 
Block 46, in the School Section Addition to 
the City of Chicago; the proceeds of said 
sale to be applied to the purchase of land for 
public parks and play grounds, as recom- 
mended above. 



Whereas, The present park system of the 
City of Chicago has been and now is a great 
blessing to our citizens in giving to them the 
fresh air and sunshine which are so difficult 
to obtain in a crowded and growing city, yet 
are so valuable in preventing crime and pro- 
moting cleanliness and diminishing disease; 
and, 

Wherea-S, This system, great and bene- 
ficent as it is, fails from lack of small local 
recreation grounds to reach many of ®ur 
citizens in the crowded central wards who 
most need such opportunities, so that the 
present system urgently needs to be supple- 
mented m those districts by breathing places 
of various sorts, including small parks, play- 
grounds for children, swimming places, pub- 
lic baths, parkways and the like; and. 

Whereas, Large districts, both within and 
beyond the city limits, have been opened up 
and become densely populated since the es- 



tablishment of our present parks, and in view 
not only of this growth in population, but of 
the corresponding growth certain to occur in 
the future, there is need for an extension of 
our park system and connecting boulevards 
into these regions ; and. 

Whereas, Land in and about the city can 
now be obtained at prices much lower than 
will have to be paid when, by increase in 
density of population, the need for greater 
park accommodation shall be felt more seri- 
ously than at present ; and 

Whereas, All these facts are indicated 
and emphasized by numerous movements in 
various parts of the city and suburbs, includ- 
ing many such movements by civic and com- 
mercial clubs, professional societies, and 
local improvement organizations, from which, 
in the opinion of this Council, great benefits 
might result, if their efforts were related to 
those of an official city commission, while suctt 
benefits can only be partial and inadequate 
unless so organized under a general scheme, 
fair and adequate to the whole population ; 
therefore, be it 

Resolved^ By the City Council of the City 
of Chicago, that the present situation of the 
City of Chicago, with regard to parks and 
other recreation grounds, should be sys- 
tematically studied, so that a consistent plan 
may be outlined, to be followed as opportu- 
nity may serve, that the public may become 
informed as to the opportunities in this city 
and the present accomplishments in other 
cities, and that waste of labor and cost in 
spasmodic, separate and unrelated move- 
ments, which must of necessity be imperfect 
and insufficient, may be saved; and, to this 
end, be it 

Resolved, That a committee shall be consti- 
tuted, as hereinafter stated, which shall sys- 
tematically procure information as to all 
facts bearing upon the needs, present and 
future, of the city, in regard to the matters 
above stated, and shall prepare recorara«nda- 
tions for a systematic and concerted plan 
for the satisfaction of such needs by the 
addition of parks or other improvements 
above suggested either within or without the 
limits of this city as they may find desirable 
which they shall as soon as practicable report 
to this Council. As members of said C®m- 
mittee. His Honor, the Mayor, is authorized 
and requested to appoint four members of 
this Council and six citizens not holding of- 
ficial position, including one lawyer, one 



October 16,J

[1899 



civil engineer, one landscape gardener 
or architect, one physician or sanitary en- 
gineer, who shall be of recognized ability 
in their profession. Each of the three 
Park Boards is authorized and requested 
to appoint one of its Tuembers, officers 
and employes as a member of said 
Committee. Such Committee is also author- 
ized to add additional members, not exceed- 
ing six; and be it further 

Resolved, That the said Committee be and 
it is hereby authorized to employ such 
clerical assistance as may be necessary, 
and as may be approved by the Mayor, 
such assistants to receive such compensation 
as the Mayor shall approve. 

William Schlake, 

Chairman. 



ALSO, 

The same Committee, to whom was referred 
a coramunicatiou and estimate from the Com- 
missioner of Public Works as to the cost of 
new bridges and viaducts, submitted a report 
recommending that the same be published 
and placed on file. 

Aid. Schlake moved to concur in the re- 
port. 

The motion prevailed. 

The following is the communication and 
estimate: 

October 14, 1899. 

Hon. WiJUam E. Sddake^ Cliairman of the 
Committee on Finance: 

Dear Sir— In a recent report to the City 
Ceuncil attention was called to the condition 
of the bridges and viaducts in the city that 
required imuiediate attention. Since sub- 
mitting that report Division street bridge has 
been taken out of service on account of its 
dangerous condition, and the gravity of the 
situation is emphasized by the complaints of 
citizens whose business interests are seriously 
affected by the situation. 1 therefore 
transmit herewith a detailed report and esti- 
mate of the bridges that I believe should 
receive immediate consideration by your 
committee, having in mind the embarrass- 
ment of your committee when considering 
the last annual appropriation bill, because 
the city's income or resources were not 



sufficient to meet its necessities, and believing 
that your honorable committee should have 
before you all available information so that 
if any change in the law is necessary, steps 
may be taken to give such change careful 
consideration, unlimited discussion and 
publicity. 

It is clearly apparent to the most casual 
observer that the city's income is not 
sufficient to pay the operating expenses of 
the city. The practice has been heretofore, 
in adaition to paying for mamtaining and 
operating the city's plants, to pay for new 
improvements or betterments out of the city's 
income, a practice that should be immediately 
abandoned, and provision should be made for 
the payment of all new improvements out of 
the proceeds of bonds, the use of the pro- 
ceeds of such bonds to be limited exclusively 
to new and permanent improvements, 
especially prohibiting the use of the 
proceeds of such bonds f®r the oper- 
ating expenses of the city government, and 
such increase in the bonded debt of the city 
to be limited to an amount sufficient to com- 
plete all necessary permanent improvements 
of the city. If the city's income from gen- 
eral taxation and licenses could be limited to 
the payment of operating expenses of the 
city some relief vv^ould be secured ; but it is 
out of the question to secure from that in- 
come a sufficient sum to pay for public im- 
provements that are absolutely necessary to 
keep pace with private improvements and for 
the proper conduct of the municipal govern- 
ment. The practice is to unjustly place on 
owners of property abutting on proposed im- 
provements for street and sidewalk intersec- 
tions charges that should be paid by the mu- 
nicipality. This results in opposition to nec- 
essary improvements by the citizens that 
otherwise would be promoted by them. The 
progress, therefore, being made in street im- 
provements is not sufficient to assure citizens 
and business men that proper roadways 
would be offered at an e&vlj day for their 
comfort, convenience and the proper trans- 
action of business. It is generally conceded 
that the present generation has paid more 
than its share for improvements of a perma- 
nent character. There should not, therefore, 
be any further increase of taxation for im- 
provements that future generations will 
enjoy more than the present one. 

A general plan and estimate for the com- 
pletion of public improvements of a perma-

be niet by the proceeds of bonds, include for:

WhEREAS, Orders have been issued from 
time to time by this body looking toward the 
removal of poles and overhead wires from the 
streets of this city and placing the wires 
underground wherever and whenever prac- 
tical so to do ; and. 

Whereas, It is necessary that on all streets 
about to be Improved with pavement of a

1346 



[1899 



lasting material, such as asphalt, brick, etc., 
all electric light, telegraph, telephone and 
other wires n®w strung overhead on poles 
along such streets be removed and placed in 
underground conduits and the poles removed, 
so that such newly paved streets be not dis- 
turbed hereafter for the purpose of placing 
such wires underground ; and, 

Whereas, The various persons and cor- 
porations owning or controlling such poles 
and wires along such streets are ready and 
willing to remove same and use underground 
conduits, for the purpose of stringing their 
wires therein, but are unable so to do in 
many instances for the reason that the city's. 
electric light, police, telephone and fire 
alarm wires are strung upon poles owned or 
controlled by such persons or corporations, 
and by reason thereof the work on certain 
streets has been stopped, leaving them in a 
torn up and uncompleted condition ; and 

Whereas, By reason of a lack of money 
in the fund properly chargeable with the ex- 
pense of removing the city's wires and plac- 
ing the same in underground conduits, a 
great and much needed improvement is likely 
to be indefinitely postponed, and it appearing 
that now while the streets are being improved 
is the proper time to place these wires under- 
ground and the time at which such changes 
may be made at the least expense and incon- 
venience to the public; therefore, for the pur- 
pose of furnishing the funds necessary for 
the carrying on promptly of the city's part 
of this work. 

Be it ordained by the City Couticil of the City 
of Chicago. ' 

Section 1. That the City Comptroller be 
and he is hereby authorized and directed to 
transfer the sum of twenty-six thousand five 
hundred (126,500.00) dollars from the "Street 
Lamp Lighting Fund" to the "Fund for Ex- 
tension of Fire Alarm and Police Telephone 
System;" said sum so transferred to be ex- 
pended solely for the purpose of removing the 
city's police telephone, fire alarm, electric 



light or other wires owned and used by the 
city, from the poles or other structures upon 
or along which said wires are now strung,

deemed necessary or advisable by the City

[1899 



Be it ordained by the City Council of the City 
of Chicago: 

Section 1. That Section 67 of an ordi- 
nance passed on March 28, 1898, as set out 
on pages 2013-2070, inclusive, of the pub- 
lished Council Proceedings of 1897-1898, said 
ordinance being otherwise known and de- 
scribed as the "Building Ordinance," be and 
the same is hereby amended by adding to 
said Section 67 the following words and fig- 
ures, to-wit: 

"All structural steel and iron work shall 
be so riveted that the distance from the cen- 
ter of the rivet hole to the edge of the ma- 
terial shall be not less than : 

% inch for 3^-inch rivets. 

% inch for _^-inch rivets. 



\% inch for s^-inch rivets. 

1% inch for X-inch rivets. 

\}/> inch for 1-inch rivets. 

Wherever possible, however, the distance 
from the rivet hole to the edge of the ma- 
terial shall be equal to two diameters of such 
rivet hole. All rivets, wherever practicable^ 
shall be machine driren; the rivets in connec- 
tions shall be proportioned and placed to suit 
the stresses, and the pitch of rivets shall 
never be less than three diameters of the riy- 
ets nor more than six (6) inches. All holes 
shall be punched accurately, so that upon as- 
sembling a cold rivet will enter the hole 
without straining the material by drifting. 
The rivets shall fill the holes completely, and, 
wherever necessary, gussets shall be pro- 
vided of sufficient thickness and size to ac- 
commodate the number of rivets necessary to 
make a connection. 

When steel or iron trusses are used the 
trusses shall be of such design that the stress 
in each member can be calculated, and all 
trusses when placed shall be held rigidly in 
position by an efficient system of lateral and 
sway bracing, and any member of a truss 
subjected to transverse stress, in addition to 
direct tension or compression, shall have the 
stresses causing- such strain added to the di- 
rect stresses coming on the member, and the 
total stresses shall in no case exceed the 
stresses provided for in Section 92 of this or- 
dinance. 

On all buildings in process of construction 
where the plans call for the use of trusses or ; 
iron and steel structural work, the erection 
of such iron and steel structural work and of 
such trusses shall be inspected daily by an 
inspector from the Building Department of ; 
the City of Chicago, and such inspector shall 
be a practical bridge and structural iron 
worker, and it shall be the duty of such in- 
spector to see that the provisions of this ordi- ' 
nance are strictly complied with, and such - 
inspector shall have the authority to compel | 
contractors and builders to use a sufficient | 

A

amount of temporarj^ bracinsr or guys neces- 
sary to insure the safety of the work during 
its erection and to compel such contractors 
and builders to keep all derricks, tackles and 
hoisting appliances used in such work in a 
safe condition. 

Whenever the plans of any building in 
process of construction where iron and steel 
structural work is to be used, requiring- bolt- 
ing to be done, all holes shall be reamed and 
turned bolts used. 

Section 2. This ordinance shall be in 
force and effect from and after its passage. 

Which was referred to the Committee on 
Judiciary. 

ALSO, 

The following veto message : 

Mayor's Office, ) 
October 23rd, 1899. \ 

To. the Honorable, the City Council: 

Gentlemen — I herewith return, without 
my approval, an order passed by your Hon- 
orable Body at its last meeting, directing the 
Corporation Counsel to stay all proceedings 
in the matter of paving Peoria street, from 
Kinzie street to Milwaukee avenue, for the 
reason that the roll is ready to file in court, 
and a stay at this time would put the city to 
unnecessary expense. 

Respectfully, 

Carter H. Harrison, 

Mayor. 

Aid. Johnson moved to reconsider the v@te 
by which the order referred to in the veto 
message of His Honor, the Mayor, was passed. 

The motion prevailed. 

Aid. Johnson moved that the order be 
passed, the veto of His Honor, the Mayor, to 
thecentrary notwithstanding. 

The motion was lost. 

ALSO, 

The following veto message : 



Mayor's Office, 
October 23rd, 



1899. 



To the Honorable, the City Council- 
Gentlemen— I herewith return, without 



my approval, an order passed by your Hon- 
orable Body at its last meeting, directing the 
Commissioner of Public Works to remove all 
lunch cars on State street, from Van Buren 
to Harrison streets, for the reason that the 
general convenience of the public seems to 
demand the presence of these lunch cars 
on the streets at night. I have heard no 
serious complaints against the presence of 
these lunch cars in State street, and as long 
as they are permitted in other quarters of the 
city, it does not seem reasonable to to pro- 
hibit their use in this one thoroughfare. 

Respectfully, 

Carter H. Harrison, 

3fayor. 

Aid. Jackson moved to reconsider the vote 
by which the order referred to in the veto 
message of His Honor, the Mayor, was 
passed. 

The motion prevailed. 

Aid. Coughlin moved that the order be 
passed, the veto of His Honor, the Mayor, to 
the contrary notwithstanding. 

The motion was lost. 

ALSO, 

The following veto message: 

Mayor's Office, ) 

October 23rd, 1899. \ 

To the Honorable, the City Council: 

Gentlemen — I herewith return,without my 
approval, an order passed by your Honorable 
Body at its last meeting directing the is- 
suance of a permit to Thomas D. Joy to lay 
house drains on payment of one fee for the 
following reason: I am informed by the 
Superintendent of the Sewer Department the 
appropriation for the inspection of private 
house di-ains is in danger of being depleted. 
The present order makes no provision for 
payment of the regular inspection fees to the 
department. I would suggest the repassage 
of this order amended as follows : 

"The said Themas D. Joy to pay the regu- 
lar fees fixed by the department for the in- 
spection of private house drains." 

Respectfully, 

Carter H. Harrison, 

3fayor.

Ordered, That the Commissioner of Pub-

to Rogers avenue, upon the payment of one 
fee ($5), the regular fee to be paid in the case 
of each drain whenever it is extended for 
use, and to be under the supervision of the

The following veto message: 

Mayor's Office, [ 

October 23rd, 1899. ( 

To the JTotiorable^ the City Council: 

Gentlemen — I herewith return, without 
my approval, an order passed by your Hon- 
orable Body at its last meeting authorizing 
the Comptroller to draw an order for the sum 
of 160 for membership in the League of 
American Municipalities, for the reason that 
the order provides this sum shall be drawn 
against the Contingent Fund. Your Honor- 
able Body in appropriating $40,000 for the 
Contingent Fund expressly directed this sura 
should be expended under the direction of 
the Mayor and the City Comptroller. In 
view of this direction it is hardly proper for 
your Honorable Body to provide the manner 
in which this fund shall be expended. I 
would suggest a reconsideration of the vote 
by which the order was passed and its re- 
passage by amending the same and striking 
out the fallowing words: "and charge the 
same to the Contingent Fund." The Comp- 
troller will pay this sum from the Contingent 
Fund, but prefers the general direction of the 



appropriation bill providing that the Con- 
tingent Fund shall be expended by the 
Comptroller and the Mayor should not be 
altered at the present time. 

Respectfully yours, 

Carter H. Harrison, 

Ilayor.

Whereas, The League of American

permanent basis; and. 

Whereas, We believe that such an organ-

ties of America together in a united effort to 
secure improveii municipal service, should be 
supported by the patriotic oflBcials ®f every 
city and town in this country; and, 

Whereas, We consider that the services

lecting and gathering from the streets, alleys

Whereas, The children usually employed

the time of their employment is the early 
morning hours; and 

Whereas, It is believed that the employ- 
ment of children in such business is not only

gaged, but constitutes a menace to the health

children engaged in such business in contact

Whereas, Chicago has in the past handled

the surrounding country ought to increase 
still further, and furnish additional lucrative 
employment to capital and labor: and 

Whereas, Bridges and other river ob- 
structions have constantly increased in num.- 
ber,and must constantly increase with the pop- 
ulation, causing impediments to navigation 



which cannot be gotten rid of, yet materially 
impair the usefulness of the river, and some- 
times make the cost of carrying a cargo to its 
destination up the North or South Branch 
as great as that of bringing it from a dis- 
tant port ; and 

Whereas, These facts are giving to other 
ports an advantage by which, under the in- 
flexible rule of the survival of ttie fittest, 
shippers of heavy merchandise are being 
steadily forced to give preference to other 
places in which they find less impediments to 
traffic, particularly with such commodities 
as are intended for elevators or storage, to 
the loss of this city's trade and commerce, 
and thereby other industries already located 
here find themselves handicapped or com- 
pelled to remove from Chicago; and 

W HEREAS, Any careful consideration of 
the preblem shows, that increased freedom of 
water communication would benefit the Chi- 
cago River and largely increase its commerce, 
just as the freedom of the Calumet River 
from obstruction has so fostered its com- 
merce that it now compares favorably with 
the other lake ports; and 

Whereas, It appears fr@m every fact of 
the situation, and particularly from the ex- 
ample of the Calumet River, that improved 
water communication always results in at- 
tracting new industries, developintr the adja- 
cent territory and opening up a region hither- 
to of little use; and. 

Whereas, Certain portions of the north 
and northwest sections of the city, notably 
the 26th, 27th and 15th wards, are now suffer- 
ing for lack of industries, which would locate 
there if such sections could be reached by an 
easy water route, and would be infused with 
new life by the influx of such industries ; and, 

Whereas, Such a water route is impossible, 
for reasons above suggested, over the present 
bed of the river, but could be very readily 
supplied by the cutting of a canal, not over 
2X miles long, from the lake to the river, 
somewhere in the neighborhood of the im- 
proved and increased dock frontage which 
will result from the straightening of the 
river between Belmont and Lawrence avenues, 
about to be commenced by the Commissioner 
of Public Works ; therefore, be it 

Resolved, That it is our duty and in line 
with the customary progressiveness of this 
city, to thoroughly consider the facts above 
presented, and to take steps for early carry-

ing out of the plaa presented; and be it fur- 
ther 

Jiei<olved, That to the ends stated, the 
Mayor be authorized and requested to ap- 
point a Commission of fifteen (15) citizens 
of the ;Xorth and Northwest Sides, who shall 
thoroughly examine into the questions pro- 
posed, procure estimates of cost, set forth a 
system of financing of the project, whether 
by the creation of a Harbor District, after 
the fashion of the Drainage District, or 
otherwise, consider from what authorities, 
state or national, legislative or other permis- 
sion might be needed; plan, if deemed advis- 
able, for a series of parks and boulevards 
along the proposed canal, which would pre- 
vent the encroachment of docks and manu- 
facturing establishments upon residence 
property along said proposed canal, and 
would at the same time assist in supplying 
needed park facilities to the region affected; 
ascertain by what means ready crossing oi 
said canal for all purposes might be secured, 
and prepare and submit to this Council a 
well-considered report on all questions in- 
volved, at as early a day as possible.

line produced of said streets, and shall slope 
thence at a uniform grade t© its intersection 
with the gutter hereinbefore described. 

Upon the roadbeds thus prepared, between 
said points, shall be spread a layer of the 
best quality of natural hydraulic cement con- 
crete, six inches in thickness, to be made as 
follows, to-wit: One part of the best 
quality of natural hydraulic cement and two 
parts of clean, sharp sand, free from clay, 
shall be thoroughly mixed dry and then made 
into a mortar. Pour and one-half parts of 
broken limestone ©f the best quality, crushed 
to a size so as t® pass through a ring two 
and one-half inches internal diameter, thor- 
oughly cleaned and drenched with water, 
shall then be incorporated immediately with 
the mortar. Each batch of concrete to be 
thoroughly mixed and at once spread upon 
the surface of said roadway and thoroughly 
compacted, and upon this foundation shall be 
evenly spread a layer of fine, clean, sharp sand, 
in such quantity as to insure, when c©mpact- 
ed, a depth of one inch, upon which shall be 
laid the brick pavement. The brick to be_ 
used shall be made of pure shale, of quality 
equal to that found in Galesburg and Glen 
Carbon in the State of Illinois, and Canton 
in the State of Ohio. The brick used shall

be broken across, theroughly dried and then 
immersed in water for seventy-two hours; 
the absorption shall then be determined by 
the difference between the weight of the 
brick dry and their weight after having been 
immersed in water for seventy-two hours. 
If such brick show a water absorption ex- 
ceeding two per cent, of their weight when 
dry, they shall be rejected. 

Not less than five specimen brick shall be 
submitted to a test for one hour in a machine 
known as a "rattler," revolving at the rate 
of thirty (30) revolutions per minute, and if 
the loss of weight by abrasion during such 
test shall exceed eight per cent, of the origi- 
nal weight of the brick t^ted, the bricks 
shall be rejected. 

The bricks shall be laid as follows, to-wit: 
Broken bricks can only be used to breaii 
joints in starting courses or making closures, 
but in no case shall less than half a brick be 
used. The bricks shall be laid on edge along 
their length close together in straight lines 
across the said roadway, and at right angles 
to the curbs and perpendicular t® the grade 
of the streets. The joints shall be broken by 
a lap of not less than three inches. On in- 
tersections and junctions of lateral streets, 
the brick shall be laid at an angle of forty- 
five (45) degrees with the line of the street. 
The bricks when set, shall be rolled with a 
roller of five tons weight until the bricks are 
well settled and made firm. When the 
bricks are thoroughly bedded, the surface ©f 
the pavement must be true to the forms of the 
roadway hereinbefore described. 

The joints or spaces between the bricks shall 
be filled with a cement grout filler composed 
of limestone 65 per cent., furnace slag 25 per 
cent., and potter's clay 10 per cent., 
to be made as follows, to-wit: The 
above materials in the proportion stated 
shall be mixed together and ground into an 
impalpable powder and then burnt in kilns 
until reduced to clinker, after which it shall 
again be ground into an impalpable powder. 



Equal portions of said grout and clean sharp 
sand shall then be thoroughly mixed and suf- 
ficient water added to bring the mixture to such 
a consistency as will allow it to run to the bot- 
tom of the joints between the brick. After 
said joints are filled to the top, the surface 
shall be finished off smoothly with steel 
brooms. The surface of the pavements shall 
then receive a one-half inch dressing of 
clean, coarse sand, which completes the 
work.

To the Honorable, the City Council: 

Gentlemen— r herewith return, without my 
approval, an ordinance passed by your Hon- 
orable Body at its last meeting granting per- 
mission to O. A. Viall to construct and 
maintain a switch track at 118th and Halsted 
streets, for the reason that the ordinance does 
not provide for compensation to be paid the 
city for the privilege it grants.

The City Comptroller submitted the fol- 
lowing report: 

Chicago, 30th October, 1899. 

To the Honora.bh the Mayor and Aldermen'' 
ill City Council Aasembled: 

Gentlemen— In obedience to an order 
passed by your Honorable Body on 5th 
Octotter, directing me to make a full and 
complete report of all moneys and compen- 
sations due the City of Chicago, from ordi- 
nances or franchises granted by the City 
Council, that are due and payable, and to 
state in full the date on which the various 
moneys or compensations were due to the 
city, als© to include the reason assigned by 
said corporations, companies, persons or indi- 
viduals for their failure to pay said moneys 
or compensations, I would beg to advise your 
Honorable Body that I have caused an ex- 
amination to be made of the terms of various 
ordinances granted by the city during the 
past ten years. I understand from the order 
of your Honorable Body that only such cor- 
porations and individuals as are in arrears 
are to be reported. These are comparatively 
few in number. 

I find in the Council proceedinas a record 
of various ordinances granted to individuals 
and corporations for use of streets, for elec- 
tric light plants, heat, power, supplies, street 
railways, etc., some of which I have been 
unable to locate. To determine definitely the 
relations between the city and these corpora- 
tions and individuals will necessitate a 
further inquiry and a careful examination in 
each instance. This will occupy a con- 
siderable time. Some of ^he parties referred 
to, it is believed, have never begun opera- 
ti©ns, and others, after being in business a 
short time, have sold out to other parties 
apparently without any notice to the city. 
In cases where the transfer has been made to 
reliable companies they must, of course, be 
compelled to assume all obligations of the 
ordinances or franchises and a demand must 
be made upon them for arrearages. If ordi- 
nances provide for forfeiture, further action 
by the Council will be required. 

In submitting this report, in answer to 
your request, I would beg to say that I have 



October 30, J 



1436 



[L899 



given all the information that it has been 
possible to obtain within the time allowed. 

It will be observed that the vprious ordi- 
nances passed and franchises granted have 
no uniform provision as to whom the percent- 
ages or licenses are to be paid: in some in- 
stances the "Comptroller" is mentioned as 
the proper receiving officer, in others the 
"City Treasurer" and still others provide 
• that the money shall be paid into the "City 
Treasury," which has a vague meaning, for 
it would apply equally to the City Treasurer, 
the Comptroller or the City Collector. These 
contradictory provisions have operated to di- 
vide responsibility and have resulted in con- 
fusion and possible loss. There should be 
greater uniformity in regard to this require- 
ment. Large payments have been made from 
time to time to the City Collector, but no 
particular record has been kept as to what 
account the amounts are applicable. I would 
respectfully suggest that all future ordi- 
nances granted contain a clause giving the 
Comptroller authority to examine the books 
of the corporations to whom franchises are 
granted. 

Possibly there may have been additional 
franchises granted during the past ten years 
which may have been overlooked. If so they 
will be made the subject of a further sup- 
plemental report. 

Referring to the separate order of your 
Honorable Body directing m*e to report 
whether I am collecting direct from corpora- 
tions, companies, persons oi- individuals, 
moneys or compensations due the City of 
Chicago under ordinances or franchises 
granted by the City Council of Chicago, 
which specifically state that certain moneys 
or compensations shall be paid direct to the 
City Comptroller, I beg to say that in some 
instances where the ordinances provide that 
the money shall be paid to the Comptroller 
they have, as previously stated, been paid to 
the City Collector who has deposited the 
same with the City Treasurer. By an under- 
standing had with the City Collector all 
payments of this character, where the ordi- 
nance so provides, will in future be made di- 
rect to the Comptroller. 

The following memorandum will give you 
the result of my examination:

The Corporation Counsel submitted the fol- 
lowing opinion : 

Office of the 1 

Counsel to the Cohpohation, > 

October 30, 1899. \ 

To the Hojirahle, the City (Joxmcil of the Citij 
of OJdcago: 

Gentlemen— In compliance with the order 
passed by your Honorable Body at its regular 
meeting October 15, 1899, printed on 
page 1296 of the current Council Proceedings, 
and supplemented and made definite by a 
letter from Aid. CuUerton. who introduced 
the order, I beg to submit the following opin- 
ion as to the power of the City Council to 
"compel the street railway company operat- 
ing upon the streets of the West Division of 
the City of Chicago, under an ordinance 
passed March 30, 1888, as the successor of the 
Chicago West Division Railway Company," 
to give better service in the matters of the 
running of cars and giving of transfers, 

Section 10 of said ordinance is, as quoted 
in your order, as follows: 

"Unless otherwise provided in this ordi- 
nance, the privileges hereby granted are sub- 
ject to all the general ordinances of the City 
of Chicago now in force, or whicli niay here- 
after he passed, in reference to street rail- 
ways." 

The company accepted the ordinance, in- 
cluding said Section 10. and although there is 
no doubt in ray mind as to either the force 
of said section or its applicability to the case 
in question, nevertheless, I have not con- 
sidered the section wholly indispensable in 
arriving at my conclusions. 

Among the powers of the City Council, 
under the present charter, the following are 
contained in Article V, Paragraph 62, in 

"Clause 42. To license, tax and regulate 
hackmen, draymen, omnibus drivers, carters, 
cabmen. pOrters, expressmen, and all others 



October 30,

[1S99 



pursuing like occupations, and to prescribe 
their compensation ;" and in the much-quoted 
case of Allerton vs. City of Chicago, 9 Bis- 
sell, 552, Judge Drummond held that this 
clause applied to street railway companies be- 
cause they were among the "others pursuing 
lilce occupations." 

In addition to the general police powers 
conferred by the charter, Section 4 of the 
Street Railroads Act further specifically 
provides that: 

"Every grant to any such company of a 
right to use any street, alley, I'oad, highway, 
or public ground, shall be subject to the 
right of the proper authorities to control the 
use, improvement, and repair of such street, 
alley, road, highway, @r public ground, to 
the same extent as if no such grant had been 
made, and to make all necessary police regula- 
tions concerni7tg the management and opera- 
tion of such railway, whether such right is re- 
served 171 the grant or not.''^ 

Laws of Illinois, 1899, p. 332. 

The Supreme Court of this State construes 
the city's police powers broadly. For in- 
stance, it has said in one case: 

"That (i. e., police powers of a municipal 
corporation) may be defined, in general 
terms, as comprehending the making and en- 
forcement of all such laws, ordinances, and 
regulations as pertain to the comfort, safety, 
health, convenience, good order, and welfare 
of the public." 

Culver vs. City of Streator, 130 Ills., 238. 

In a more recent case it says that a street 
railway company "is invested with corporate 
life and granted corporate powers to enable 
it to serve the public as a public carrier of 
passengers. Its property is impressed with a 
public use, and it must exercise its powers 
for the benefit of the public. It is not a pri- 
vate, but a quasi-public corporation." 

People vs. Suburban R. R. Co., 178 Ills., 
504. 

Consequently, having in view the powers 
conferred by the state, and the construction 
placed upon them by the courts, and bearing 
in mind said Section 10 of the ordinanee men- 
tioned, so far as it may be useful, I am of the 
opinion that the City Council may, by a gen- 
eral ordinance in reference to street railways, 
provided it be reasonable in its terms and re- 
quirements, compel the street railway com- 



pany operating in the West Division of the 
City of Chicago, under the said ordinance of 
March 30, 1888, as successor of the Chicago 
West Division Railway Company, to run cars,, 
sufficient in number and at times to meet the 
needs of the traveling public. 

The question of compelling the street car 
companies to furnish adequate transfer serv- 
ice has been heretofore passed upon by this 
department. Judge Hutchinson, when Cor- 
poration Counsel, in an opinion printed oa 
page HOT of the Council Proceedings for 
1890- '91, and later Mr. Thornton, in an opin- 
ion printed on page 219 of the Council Pro- 
ceedings for 1898-'99, have both expressed 
themselves in favor of the position that the 
Council has full powers in this respect. I 
have carefully examined the authorities cited 
by them, and also the later decisions of the 
courts bearing upon the same question, ahd 
see no reason to dissent from the conclusions 
formerly reached by this department. 

I am, theref@re. of the opinion that the 
Council may, by a general ordinance, compel 
the said street railway company to provide 
transfer service in the West Division of the 
city reasonably adequate to the public needs.. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Charles M. Walker.

The following opinion: 

Office of the l 

Counsel to the Corporation, [-

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City 
of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — In obedience to an order of 
your Honorable Body, passed October 16, 
1899, I herewith submit an opinion as to the 
right of the City Council to pass an ordiuaaee 
to compel the elevated railway companies to 
paint their structures white in the business 
district of the city. 

I find no provision in any of the ordinances 
under which the elevated railway companies 
operate compelling them to paint their struct- 
ures white, nor any reservation therein of 
power to the City Council to pass an ordi- 
nance to compel them to do so. Most of the 
said ordinances provide that the privileges

[1899 



thereby given are subject to all g^eneral ordi- 
Kances of the City of Chicago hereafter to be 
])assed in reference to elevated railways, but, 
;>f course, this only refers to general ordi- 
nances that the Council has power to pass. 
The Council would only have the legal right 
to pass such an ordinance as is now in ques- 
tion under its police powers, and I am in- 
clined to the opinion that not even the broad- 
est interpretation of the Council's police 
powers would make them extend to such a 
njeasure as this.

The following opinion: 

Office of the i 

Counsel to the Corporation, ;- 

October 28, 1899. ) 

To the Ho7iorable, the (Jity Council of tlie City 
of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — Your Honorable Body passed 
at its last regular meeting an order, printed 
<3n page 1373 of the current Council proceed- 
ings, directing the Corporation Counsel to 
submit an opinion as to whether the City 
Council has the legal right to pass an ordi- 
nance compelling the Commissioner of Build- 
ings to remove all signs and bill boards facing 
or abutting upon boulevards within the city 
limits; also, if said commissioner has the 
legal right to refuse any more permits for 
the same. 

No express power is conferred by . the 
charter upon the City Council to regulate 
signs and bill boards. The Council has the 
power to declare what shall be a nuisaoce, 
but it has no power to declare that a nuisance 
which is not such in fact. 

"Although the police power is a broad one, 
it is not without limitations, and a secure 
structure which is not an infringement upon 
the public safety, and is not a nuisance, can- 
not be made one by legislative fiat and then 
prohibited. (Yates vs. Milwaukee, 10 Wall. 
497; 1 Dill. Mun. Corp. 374.)" 

This is the rule as applied to signs and bill 
boards upon lots facing or abutting upon 
streets controlled by the city, and I know no 
reason why a different rule should be applied 



to signs or bill boards situated upon lots 
abutting upon a boulevard ; and I am, there- 
fore, of the opinion that the City Council has 
no legal right to pass an ordinance compelling 
the Commissioner of Buildings to remove all 
such signs and bill boards, or to refuse per- 
mits for their erection for the mere reason 
that they are to be erected upon lots abutting 
upon boulevards.

Gentlemen — In accordance with your or-

To the Honorable, the Mayor and Aldermen in 
City Cou7icil Assembled: 

Gentlemen — I beg to submit herewith 
copy of propositions made by Nels Sampson 
and Frank Holm to sell to the City of Chica- 
go land in the Village of Norwood Park on 
the east and west sides respectively on the 
City Water Works lot. The necessity for 
this purchase lies in the fact that in erecting 
the city's plant the property of the parties 
herein named was encroached upon. I there- 
fore submit for your consideration the fol- 
lowing preamble and resolution : 

Whereas. Claims have been made by the 
property owners -on either side of the Nor- 
wood Park Pumping Station that the city's 
building encroached upon their lots; and 

Whereas, Each of said owners has made 
a proposition to sell to the City of Chicago 
ten (10) feet of ground adjoining on either 
side of the Norwood Park Pumping Station, 
as per papers attached ; therefore be it 

Resolved, That the Mayor and City Comp- 
troller be and they are hereby authorized to 
purchase from Nels Sampson ten (10) feet of 
Lot nine (9), Block forty-two (42) in Nor- 
wood Park at 125.00 per front foot, adjoining 
the Norwood Park Pumping Station on the 
west side; and from Frank Holm ten (10) 
feet of Lot eleven (11), Block forty-two (42)

Chicago, Oct. 2rth, 1899. 

To the Jfayor and Aldermen of the City of 
Chicago in Council Assembled: 

Your Committee on Judiciary, to whom 
was referred resolution, municipal owner- 
ship, compensation, etc., by street railroads, 
providing for the appointment of commission 
to look into as to feasibility, having had the 
same under advisement, beg leave to report

Whereas, The contractual relations at 
present existing between several of the com- 
panies operating the street car systems in the 
City of Chicago and the municipality of the 
City of Chicago, will shortly expire; and 

Whereas, The problem of the renewal or 
extension of these franchises, and of all 
others that are to expire in the future, pre- 



October 30.J

[1S99 



sents itself at the present time, and in view 
of the niajrnitude and variety of interest in- 
volved is of paramount importance: and 

Whereas, It is the almost unanimous 
opinion of the people of the City of Chicago 
that the existing: laws and ordinances con- 
cerning street railway franchises and the 
municipal regulations of the operation of 
street rail.vay systems are antiquated and 
were enacted at a time when the City of 
Chicago had not reached its present stage of 
development, and such acts and ordinances 
are wholly inadequat* to meet the needs and 
requirements of the people of the City of 
Chicago, both with respect to accommoda- 
tions and facilities for passengers and for 
compensation tor the use ©f the public streets 
and highways by said operating companies, 
and in many other regards: and 

Whereas, In view of these existing condi- 
tions, constructive legislation is necessary, 
looking toward the enactment of such con- 
tracts as will result in a correction of the 
evils and defects of the past and assure to 
the people of the City of Chicag© good and 
efficient service, as well as just and adequate 
remuneration for the privileges enjoyed by 
the companies to whom such franchises or 
renewals thereof may be granted ; and 

Whereas, The question of municipal 
ownership of street railways is engrossing 
public attention and finds many advocates 
amongst citizens having the interest of the 
city at heart, and the expediency and de- 
sirability of this step is one of the questions 
that must be taken into serious consideration 
before any final steps are taken toward renew- 
ing existing or granting new franchises ; and 

Whereas. The people of the City of 
Chicago look with deep concern and jealous 
eye at the ultimate solution of these questions 
and should have a voice in their settlement, 
and with this in view, a submission of the 
same to the arbitrament of the people by 
means of referendum, may be advisable: now 
therefore, be it 

Hesoh'td , That the Mayor be and he is 
hereby authorized and directed, by and with 
the concurrence of the City Council, within 
thirty days after the passage of this resolu- 
tion, to appoint a committee of seven mem- 
bers of this Council, who shall be composed 
as follows: Three from the West Side, two 
from the Noith Side, and two from the South 
Side, who've loliiic-il affiliations shall be. 



Republicans, three: Democrats, three: In- 
dependents, one, whose duty it shall be to: 

First — Examine into the feasibility and 
practicability of the municipal ownership of

conditions under which this ownership may 
be established. 

Second — Examine into the questions of 
kind and amount of cwmpensatien and 
the conditions for the renewal of exist- 
ing or granting of new franchises or 
renewals, kind of motive power best 
adapted to various sections of the city 
and at varying times: the condition in which 
the streets, highways and tunnels are to be 
placed and maintained by companies us- 
ing the same: accomodations to be furnished 
passengers: amount of fares: commutation 
tickets: transfers: terminal facilities and 
switches: extension of lines: protection of 
the citizens against accident, and penaliie- 
for non-compliance with the laws, ordi- 
nances, rules and regulations. 

Third — To report to this body such meas- 
ures, modes of procedure and ordinances a- 
shall be requisite and necessary to carry int' 
effect after their passage the recommenda- 
tions of this commission.
